Dear Class of 2007, 

I take great pleasure in informing you of your appointment to the fixst-year medical class at the 
Tulane University School of Medicine, to enter in August of, 2003. 1 sincerely hope that you will 
accept our invitation to take your medical training at Tulane and look forward to having you join us. 

In order to reserve your place in the class, we must receive, within the next two weeks, written 
notification of your intent to accept our invitation. At anytime between now and May 15, 2003, we 
must receive a check, payable to the Tulane Educational Fund, in the amount of $500; this deposit 
will be credited against your first tuition billing. Please understand this deposit is non-refundable and 
should indicate your final decision to attend Tulane University School of Medicine. We ask that 
should you decide not to attend Tulane, you inform us in writing so that we can maintain an accurate 
accounting of our class. 

I am sure you will understand that your appointment is contingent upon successful completion of the 
academic program in which you are currently enrolled, and maintenance of the level of academic 
performance that was part of the basis for your acceptance. A final transcript of your grades must be 
forwarded to this office as soon as your school year ends. 

You will be receiving additional information concerning summer programs, combined-degree 
programs, and other topics of interest as the year progresses. I and others at the medical school will 
try to keep you well informed of all important or interesting topics. 

On behalf of the students, faculty, and administration at Tulane, I bid you a most enthusiastic 
welcome. If I can be of service to you in any way, please feel free to call upon me. 

Sincerely yours.

THE OATH OF 
HIPPOCRATE 

I swear by Apollo, the physician^ and Aesculapius, and Health and 
All-Heal, and by God and by whatever I hold most sacred? that, ac- 
cording to my ability and judgment, I will keep this Oath and this 
stipulation—I will look upon those who shall have taught me this 
Art even as one of my parents. I will share my substance with them, 
and I will supply their necessities if they be in need. I will regard their 
offspring in the same footing as my own brethren, and I will teach 
them this Art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or covenant. 
I will impart a knowleidge of the Art by precept, by lecture and by 
every mode of teaching not only to my own children but to the chil- 
dren of those who have taught me, and to disciples bound by cove- 
nant and oath, according to the Law of Medicine, but to none other. 
The regimen I adopt shall be for the benefit of my patients ac- 
cording to my ability and Judgment and I will abstain from what- 
ever is deleterious and mischievous. I will seek to inform my 
patients fully about their illness and prognosis, and will always 
remember that the final decision regarding their own life rests 
with the patient. I will regard my patients always as fellow hu- 
man beings and will do everything possible to preserve their dig- 
nity. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and prac- 
tice my Art. Whatsoever things I see or hear concerning the life 
of men in my attendance, on the sick or even apart therefrom, 
which ought not to be noised abroad, I will keep silence thereon, 
counting such things to be sacred secrets. While I continue to 
keep this Oath unviolated, may it be granted to me to enjoy life 
and the practice of the Art, respected by all men, in all times. But 
should I trespass and violate this Oath, may the reverse be my lot.

New Orleans...there's no place I would've rather done it! 

Jay- What can I say brother... 4 years of friendship much appreciated. Congratulations on AOA, UMD-urology (keep your eye on 
the...), and meeting your lovely wife. You did well during these four years! Never forget though, no matter what, I'll always be taller (I 
don't care what your driver's license says), younger (by a year), and while we're at it more handsome. You owe me $50 for Bonds...I'll 
take It out of the wedding gift. I will see you and Eva soon. Megalo- You'll always be very special to me. I wish you the best in all 
your pursuits and know you will find happiness. ..Your kind-heartedness (which is only rivaled by your lack of knowledge of the world- 
What language do we speak in India? In fact, where is India?) assures you of it. Also, you're a hippie, I think you look good in earrings, 
and it's about time you bought a big purse. I love you very much. Kev- Who's the biggest guy in the med school? Pound for pound you 
know the truth, I missed you third year, but I guess if you were around all we would've done is drink protein shakes, eat Roly Poly, and 
talk about your girl troubles. Thanks for everything man. AY, AY- I'm glad we were able to spend these last four years building on 
what has to my delight turned into a lifelong friendship. I'm sorry about the Chinese food, but I wonder ''are you not entertained?" Oh 
and "guys if I wasn't, like, her sister I would totally..." Ap- Lab partners to great friends. It's like destiny. Houston was the best, 
once you got rid of that ball and chain. Who else can I daydream about being filthy rich with while lying in the sun, poolside. "So away 
from my window..." And don't worry, I was only joking when I said getting dogs cuts your dating pool in half. See you somewhere in the 
sun. My girls+l...I couldn't have asked for better roommates. Jess- I think you are one of the sweetest and kindest souls I have ever 
met, who can also cook with the best of them. Please try to hold your vodka down and keep the dogs in the front of the house like you 
promised! Nate- You're not in school with us, but how can I leave you out. You want to walk up the off ramp to meet Jess in the 
middle of the highway? I don't get it, smoke dawg. I know that you and Jess are going to be great together and I look forward to 
visiting you guys over the years. Kothryn- "I don't know what it is, but I want it." I love listening to you speak. I'm so glad that you 
came back to us. Cool to chill out with, cool to go out with, and cool to spend New Year's with. You've got it all. Morco- We had great 
times V year, .then you got married, had a kid, moved to Metairie all in the blink of an eye and I never sow you again. Just joking, I 
look forward to always keeping in touch and I wish yourself, Barrie, and Riley (the cutest kid I know) all the happiness in the world. 
You'll be good in whatever you chose to do. And Bam'e- Thanks for your friendship. You'll always be a southern belle with social 
standing in my eyes. Art- It was good to know you buddy. Wake boarding, Centreville, making you cry on the golf course, tennis court, 
and racket-ball court. I enjoyed it all. If anybody did medical school the right way, it was you. FPlttS- One of my favorite memories 
remains playing pool, eating a cheeseburger, and having a beer at Igor's. You're a great person, which is maybe why you're so terrible at 
talking trash. I'm always there for you. Sopi...come on be honest-who talks more? I wish you guys the best of luck together. MJ- 
Who's got a chip on their shoulder? Thanks for taking care of me when I was sick 1^^ year and for everything since! It's too bad you 
moved to the AAarigny...You like my jokes, come on! Roddy- I'll never bet with you again, but I love you never the less. My mom is still 
worried that you're going into pediatrics. I know you'll do great though. So Hoyas! Nicole- Your charm is in your cynicism. ..but don't 
forget that you're destiny is a happy one. Thanks for picking me up on St. Charles at 6am. Zeena- You're not high maintenance. I 
loved all the time we spent together V^ year and you get a standing happy birthday from me on Feb 23'"'^ of every year. 
Lauren/Liat/Seeta- I only lump you guys together b/c you're such good friends, yet I had separate friendships with each of you 
and appreciated each one of them. Thanks. Pinner- Hey man, you made my third year of medical school easy. Lab A2 
Craig, Amy, Aimee,Ap,RJ- Let's just start by asking which lab group was the best in our class? You guys were the beginning of a 
great experience. Others, all of whom I thank for your f riendship-AB,AH,AS,BB,BM,BN,BY,CBx2,CD,CJ,DB,D&,CiM,FaD0,DW,HU,IG, 
JBx4,JC,JD,JF,JG,JWx2,DrJW,KJ,KK,LM,LP,MD,MA,MC,ML,NG,NM,NN,NP,OB,RB,RK,RR,SB,SC,SK,SL,SM,SY,SW,TB,TG,TI,TR,WP. 

Dad, Mom, Anuj, Rohan, as well as family and friends from further away- im where i am today 

because of all your help. Thank you!

Dearjejf, 

We feel such pride and happiness for you. You kept smiling, believing in yourself and following that third grade dream of 
becoming a doctor You are there! CONGRATULATIONS 

We love you. 
Mom and Dad 

Seize the Moment 

Seize the moment before its gone I for another day begins at dawn. I Embrace the )iight winch brings you rest I awake and know 

you did your best. /Fight each fight and run each race-it matters not if you win or place. I Seize the moment you'll be blest 

I then rest assured you passed the test, I for he who tries can never fail I when God directs the ship lue sail. I Seize the moment 
and hold it dear / and rise by faith above your fear 






Dearest Beckv, 


I'm 50 very proud of you and all you've accomplished! I'd be 


remiss if 1 didn't take credit for a little moral support here 


and there, but you're the one who did the studying, endured 


ail the crappy residences and spent endless nights on call. The 


time I've spent with you has been the best three years of my 


life. 1 can't wait to start the rest of our life, finally and really. 


together, forever. 


Congratulations, I love you with all my heart,

As an adjunct to diet 





CRESTOR is indicated as an adjunct to diet to reduce elevated levels of total-C, 
LDL-C, ApoB, non-HDL-C, and TG, and to Increase HDL-C in patients with 
primary hypercholesterolennia (heterozygous familial and nonfamilial) and 
mixed dyslipidemia 

CRESTOR is contraindicated In patients with a known hypersensitivity to 
any component of this product, in patients with active liver disease or 
with unexplained persistent elevations of serum transaminases, In 
women who are or may become pregnant, and in nursing mothers 
It is recommended that liver function tests be performed before and at 
12 weeks following both the initiation of therapy and any elevation of dose, 
and periodically (eg, semiannually) thereafter. Should an Increase in ALT or 
AST of >3 times ULN persist, reduction of dose or withdrawal of CRESTOR 
Is recommended 

The effect of CRESTOR on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality has not 
been determined; long-term outcome studies are currently underway 



Please see Brief Summary of full Prescribing Information 
on reverse side of this advertisement. 

Please visit our Web site at www.crestor.com 



• Rare cases of rhabdomyolysis with acute renal failure secondary to 
myoglobinuria have been reported with CRESTOR and with other drugs In 
this class. Patients should be advised to promptly report unexplained 
muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, particularly if accompanied by 
malaise or fever. Therapy with CRESTOR should be discontinued If markedly 
elevated CK levels occur or myopathy Is diagnosed or suspected 

• CRESTOR 40 mg is reserved only for those patients not achieving LDL-C 
goal at 20 mg. Patients initiating statin therapy or switching from another 
statin should begin treatment with CRESTOR at the appropriate 
starting dose 

• Adverse reactions were usually mild and transient; the most frequent 
adverse events thought to be related to CRESTOR were myalgia (3.3%), 
constipation (1.4%), asthenia (1.3%), abdominal pain (1.3%), and 
nausea (1.3%)'^

INDICATIONS AND USAGE CRESTOR is mdicaleti: i. as an adjunct lo diet la 
reduce e^evaled latal-C, LDL-C. Apo8. nonHDL-C. and TG levels and to increase HDL-C in 
patients ftith prmary hyperctiolesleralemia [heterozygous familial and nonramilial) and 
mixed dy^lipidemia (Frednckson Type lla and lib); 2. as an adjunct to diet for Ihe treatment 
of patienis ft-ith elevated serum TG levels (Fredrickson Type IV): 3. to reduce LDL-C, lotal-C, 
and ApoB jn patienis vviih tiomozygous lamilial hypercholesterolemia as an adjunct lo olher 
lipid-lowering treatments (e.g., LDL aphersis} or if such treatments are unavailable 
CONniAINDICAnONS CRESTOR is contraindicated m palients witfi a known hyper- 
sensitivity to any component ot this product Rosuvastatin is contraindicated in palients 
with active liver disease or with unexplained persistent elevallons of serum transaminases 
(see WARNINGS. Lver Enzymes). Pregnancy and Lactation Alherosclerosis is a 
dironic process and discontinuation ol iipid-lowenng dnigs during pregnancy should have 
Bttle impact on Ihe outcome ol long-term therapy of primary hypercholesterolemia 
Cholesterol and other producls of cholesterol biosynthesis are essenlial components for 
fetal development (including synthesis ol sleroids and cell membranes). Since HMG-CoA 
raiuclase inhibitors decrease choleslerol synthesis and possibly the synthesis ot other 
biologically active substances derived from cholesterol, they may cause fetal harm when 
^ministered lo pregnant women. Tfieretore, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors are coniramdi- 
cared during pregnancy and in nursing mothers. ROSUVASTATIN SHOULD BE ADMINIS- 
TERED TO WOMEN OF CHILDBEARING AGE ONLY WHEN SUCH PATIENTS ARE HIGHLY 
UNLIKaVTO CONCEIVE AND HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POTENTIAL HAZARDS, Itihe 
palKnt becomes pregnant while taking Ihis drug, therapy should be discontmued immedi- 
ately and Ihe patient appnsed oi the potential hazard to the lelus WARNINGS liver 
Enzymes HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, like some other lipid-lowering therapies, have 
been associated with biochemical abnormalities of liver function The incidence qI persis- 
tent elevations (>3 times Ihe upper limit □( normal [ULN] occurring on 2 or more consec- 
utive occasions) in serum Iransaminases in lined dose studies was i. 0. 0, and 0.1 % in 
patients wbo received rosuvastatin 5, 10, 20, and 40 mg, respecliveiy. In most cases, Ihe 
elevations were transient and resolved or improved on continued therapy or after a brief 
interruption in therapy Tiiere were two cases of jaundice, for which a relationship to rosuva- 
sHIin Iherapy could not be determined, which resolved after discontinuation ol therapy 
There were m cases ol \m lailure or irreversible liver disease in these tnals. H is recom- 
mended hat liver function tests be performed before and at 12 weeks tollowing bo^ (tie 
mitiab'on of therapy and any elevation ol dose, and periodically (e.g.. semiannually) 
thereafter. Lr/er enryme changes generally occur in the first 3 monlhs ol treatment with 
rasu'i'astatin Patients who develop increased transaminase levels should be monitored until 
Ihe abnormalities have resolved. Should an increase m ALT or AST of >3 times ULN persist, 
reduction of dose or wiina'av.-al ol rosuvastalm is recommended Rosuvaslatin should be 
used w:th caution m pa'ienls who consume subslaniial quantilies of alcohol and/or have a 
history of liver disease {see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, Special Populaiions, Hepatic 
Insufficiency). Active liver disease or unexplained persistent transaminase elevations are 
contraindications to the use of rosirvastatin (see CONTRAINDICATIONS) Myopothy/ 
RKabdomyolysis Rare cases ol rhabdomyolysis ivrth acute renal lailure secondary 
to myoglobinuria have been reported nilh rosuvaslatin and with other drugs in this 
class. Uncomp;:caieo myaigia has been reported m rosuvaslalin-lreaied patienis [see 
ADVERSE REACTIONS). Creatine kinase (CK) elevations (>10times upper limit of normal) 
occurred in 02% to Q,4% of patients taking rosuvastatin at doses up to 40 mg in clinical 
studies. Treatment-related myopathy, defined as muscle aches or muscle weakness in 
conjunclion vrth increases in CK values >10 times upper limit of normal, v/as reported m 
up lo 0-1% ol patients taking rosuvastatin doses ol up lo 40 mg in clinical studies. In clin- 
ical triafe, Ihe incidence ol myopathy and rliabdomyotysis increased at doses ol rosuva- 
statin above ^e recommended dosage range (5 lo 40 mg). In postmar1(eting experience, 
effects on skeletal muscle, e.g. uncomplicated myalgia, myopathy and, rarely, rhabdomy- 
olysis have been reported m patients trealed wilh HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors including 
rosuvastatin As wilh olher HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, reports ol rhabdomyolysis wfih 
rosiwastatin are rare, but higher at Ihe highest marketed dose (40 mg). Faclors that may 
predispose patients lo myopatliy with HMG-CoA reductase inhibilors include advanced age 
{>K years), hypolfiyroidism, and renal insufficiency. Conseouently: t. Rosuvastatin 
should be prescribed with cautran in patients wilh predisposing factors for myopathy, such 
as. renal impairment (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION), advanced age, and inade- 
qualely treated frypotftyroidism Z Palients should be advised to promptly report unex- 
pbined muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, particularly if accompanied by malaise or 
fwer, Rosirvastatin iberapy should be discontinued if markedly elevated CK levels occur or 
myopathy is diagnosed or suspected. 3. The 40 mg dose of rosuvaslatin is reserved only for 
those palients vrtio have not acfiieved Iheir LDL-C goal utilizing Ihe 20 mg dose of rosuva- 
stalm once daity (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION). 4. The risk ol myopalhy during 
Ireatment with rosuvaslatin mjy be increased vflth concurrent admimslralion ol olher lipid- 
lo-ivering therapies or cydosporine, (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, Drug Interactions, 
PRECAUTIOfJS, Drug Interactions, and DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION), The benefit of 
brfier alterations in lipid levels by the combined use ol rostivastatin with fibrates or 
niacin sliojid be carefully weighed against Ihe potential risks of this combination. 
Combination tfierapy wilh rosuvastatjn and gemlibrozil should generally be avoided.

cyclosporine (see WARNINGS, Myopalhy/Rhabdomyolysis, and DOSAGE AND ADMINIS- 
TRATION) Warfarin: Coadministration of rosuvastatin to palients on stable warfarin 
therapy resulted in clinically significant rises in INR (>4, baseline 2-3). In patients taking 
coumarin arlicoagulants and rosuvaslatin concomitantly, INR should be determined before 
starting rosuvastatin and Ireguently enough during eariy Iherapy to ensure thai no signili- 
cant alteralion of INR occurs. Once a stable INR time has been documented, INR can be 
monrtored at the intervals usually recommended lor patienis on coumarin anticoagulants. II 
Ihe dose of rosuvaslatin is changed, the same procedure should be repeated. Rosuvaslatin 
Iherapy has not been associated with bleeding or with changes in INR in patients not laking 
anticoagulants. Gemfibmzil: Coadministration of a single rosuvastatin dose to heahhy 
volunteers on gemlibrozil (600 mg twice daily) resulted m a 2.2- and 1 .9-lold, respecliveiy, 
increase in mean Cmax and mean AUC ol rosuvastatin [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRA- 
TION). Endocrine Function Although clinical studies have shown that rosuvastatin 
alone does not reduce basal plasma Cortisol concentration or impair adrenal reserve, 
caution should be exercised if any HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor or other agent used to 
lower choleslerol levels is administered concomilanlly v/ith drugs thai may decrease the 
levels or activity of endogenous steroid hormones such as keloconazole, spironolactone, 
and cimelidine. CNS Toxicily CNS vascular lesions, characterized by perivascular 
hemorrhages, edema, and mononuclear cell infiltration of perivascular spaces, have been 
observed in dogs treated with several other members of this drug class A chemically 
similar drug in this class produced dose-dependent optic nerve degeneration (Wallenan 
degeneration of relinogeniculate libers) in dogs, at a dose that produced plasma drug levels 
about 30 times higher Ihan the mean drug level in humans taking Ihe highest recommended 
dose. Edema, hemorrhage, and partial necrosis in the inlerslitium of Itie choroid plexus was 
observed in a female dog sacrificed moribund at day 2'1 al 90 mg/kg/day by oral gavage 
(systemic exposures 100 times the human exposure at -lO mg/day based on AUC compar- 
isons) Corneal opacity was seen in dogs trealed lor 52 weeks at 6 mg/kg/day By oral 
gavage (syslemic exposures 20 limes the human exposure al 40 mg/day based on AUC 
comparisons). Cataracts were seen in dogs trealed for 12 weeks by oral gavage at

Pregnancy Pregnancy CalsgoryXSee CONTRAINDICATIONS. Rosuvaslatin may cause 
felal harm when adminislered lo a pregnant woman. Rosuvastalm is conlraindicaled in 
women wtio are or may become pregnant. Safety in pregnant women has not been eslab- 
lished. There are no adequate and v/eil-controlled studies of rosuvastatin in pregnant 
women. Rosuvastatin crosses the placenta and is found in fetal tissue and amniotic lluid at 
3% and 20%, respectively, ol Ihe maternal plasma concentration lollowmg a single

the evenis reported above, as with olher drugs in this class, tlie following event has been 
reported during post-marketing experience with CRESTOR, regardless ol causality assess- 
ment: very rare cases of laundice. OVERDOSAGE There is no specilic Ireatment in the 
event of overdose. In the event ol overdose, the patient should be heated symplomaticaliy 
and supportive measures inslituted as required Hemodialysis does nol signilicanlly 
enhance clearance ol rosuvastalm. DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION The patiem 
should be placed on a standard cholesterol-lowering diet belore receiving CRESTOR 
and should continue on Ihis diet during treatment, CRESTOR can be adminislered as 
a single dose at any lime of day. wilh of without food. Hypercholesterolemia 
(Heterozygous Familial and Nonfomilial) and Mixed Dyslipidemto 
[Fredrickson Type lla and lib) The dose range tor CRESTOR is 5 to 40 mg once 
daily. Therapy with CRESTOR should be individualized according to goal ol therapy and 
response. The usual recommended starting dose ol CRESTOR is 10 mg once daily. 
However, inilialion of therapy with 5 mg once daily should he considered (or patients 
requiring less aggressive LDL-C reductions, who have predisposing laclors lor myopathy, 
and as noled below lor special populations such as patienis laking cyclosporine, Asian 
palients, and patienis wilh severe renal msulliciency (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, 
Race, and Renal Insufficiency, and Drug Inferactions. For patienis with marked hypercho- 
lesterolemia (LDL-C > 1 90 nig/dl) and aggressive lipid targets, a 20-mg starting dose may 
be considered. After initiation and/or upon titration of CRESTOR, lipid levels should be 
analysed wilhin 2 to 4 weeks and dosage adjusted accordingly The 40-mg dose ol 
CRESTOR is reserved only lor those patients who have nol achieved their LDL-C goal 
utilizing the 20 mg doss ol CRESTOR once daily (see WARNINGS, Myopathy/ 
Rhabdamyolysis). liVhen initiating statin therapy or switching Irom another statin 
therapy, the appropriate CRESTOR starting doss sfiould lirst be utilized, and only then 
titrated according lo the patient's individualized goal ot therapy. Homo^gous 
Familial Hypercholesterolemia The recommended starting dose ol CRESTOR is 
20 mg once daily in palienis wilh homo^gous FH The maximum recommended daily dose 
is 40 mg. CRESTOR should be used in these palients as an adjunct to olher lipid-lowering 
treatments (e.g., LDL apheresis) or if such treatments are unavailable. Response lo therapy 
should be estimated Irom pre-apheresis LDL-C levels Dosage in Asian Patients 
Inilialion ol CRESTOR therapy wilh 5 mg once daily should be considered lor Asian 
palients The potential lor increased syslemic exposures relative lo Caucasians is relevant 
v/hen considering escalation ol dose in cases where hypercholeslerofemia is not adequately 
controlled at doses ol 5, 10, or 20 mg once daily. (See WARNINGS, Myopathy/ 
Rhabdomyolysis. CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, Special Populaiions, Race, and PRECAU- 
TIOMS, General) Dosage In Patients Taking Cyclosporine In patienis laking 
cyclosporine, Iherapy should be limited to CRESTOR 5 mg once daily (see WARNINGS, 
Myopalhy/Rhabdomyolysis, and PRECAUTIONS, Drug Interactions). Concomitant 
Upid-Lowering Therapy The effcci of CRESTOR on LDL-C and tolal-C may be 
enhanced v/hen used in combination wilh a bile acid binding resin. If CRESTOR is used in 
combination wilh gemfibrozil, the dose ol CRESTOR should be limiled lo 10 mg once daily 
(see WARNINGS, Myopalhy/Rhabdomyolysis, and PRECAUTIONS, Drug Inleraclions). 
Dosage in Patients With Renal Insufficiency No modilication ol dosage is 
necessary lor palients wilh mild to moderate renal insufliciency. For palienis with severe 
renal impairment {Ql^, <30 mLymln/1.73 m^) not on hemodialysis, dosing ol CRESTOR 
should be started al 5 mg once daily and nol lo exceed 10 mg once daily (see
